Thread: Overhead Serve?
09-27-2005, 09:26 PM #1
The other day I overheard some people talking about the possibility of the IBF implementing an overhead serve along with the up to 21 points. STOP TRYING TO MAKE BADMINTON TENNIS. HIRE AN EXPERIENCED BUSINESSMAN WHO HAS PLAYED BADMINTON AT A HIGH LEVEL. GO INTO DEBT A LITTLE, TAKE A CHANCE!!! PROMOTE THE SPORT THROUGH ADVERTISING!

I hope this is just a rumor. The 21 point is cool and all, but the overhand serve? sounds like a rumor to me

Wow, this is something smashing!!! Imagine it will be like my kids do, throw up the shuttlecock in the air and start smashing them in quick motion. Sometimes, I think it will unfair to the receiver......... Those who love to smash will like this idea Those who are poor in retrieving smashes will not support this Afterall, this is an overhead serve, isn't it

Why not just switch over to tennis completely? If it's Punch G.'s idea, I wanna pop him one. Can't believe IBF even entertain that idea!

but.. what's the point of overhead serve? can't see any advantages/ improvement of the game. it's just plain stupid

HMM... IT seems like a better idea to change or disregard the IBF if this pushes through... than to quit. Who made the Ibf the owner of BAdminton.. the are just suppose to be the caretakers of the game..
sorry for the slightly heated post..

Let us see how tennis players do a badminton style backhand short serve. Or badminton players learning how to create a top spin on the shuttle. Now these things would be interesting. Or maybe as absurd as an overhead badminton serve.

SCHWEEEEET!!! My serve will no longer be a weak point in my game. Now I just have to work on return of serve, clearing, dropping, net shots, backhand, forehand, and smash defense...

Please, an overhead serve completely defies the point of the game. Unless you played it from the back its unfair, and if you do play it from the back, what are you supposed to do with it? People with good returns would walk all over you.
Grrr why try and mix badminton with tennis, its not even a good game dammit
